God I craved that.
It’s been weeks since I had a night to myself in my little house.
I value my alone time as much as I value my ghd.
As much as I’ve the last two weeks of amazing romance and fun with old friends, all I could think of yesterday at work was:
‘Oh my God. I can walk around naked and listen to Bump 5 tonight.’
Dude. A night in. By myself.
I roared home all excited – ready to unpack two suitcases (one still from Italy), and do my fucking washing. Have a long bath - showers over the last few weeks just don’t fucken cut it – and laze around watching the ‘teewee’. (At least that’s what my German mates calls a television).
I’ve got to that point in my life where I would seriously balance up being co-dependent versus independent.
Both has it’s serious perks for sure.
Too much of one or the other is unhealthy – but shit it’s nice to come home and embark on my little routines.
1) Throwing a whole suitcase of clothes into the washing machine
2) Listening to terrible socially unacceptable music.
3) Watching Khloe & Kourtney Do Miami while wearing a puffer on the couch.
4) Being in my own little world. Where I can talk to my myself like myself is another person.
I’m on the brink of all sorts of things at the moment, I have a lot to absorb and process, crisis lots is happening.
Have to be objective and clear-headed about everything that’s going on around me. And what’s about to happen.
Work and personal.
I am so excited to go to the UK and Ireland next week, for both of the above. Had a Guinness over the weekend to warm up. That shit tastes better every time I drink it.
We’re going on a roadtrip through Ireland before the work conference. All through those cute little towns, staying the night in Galway, and ending in Killarney. Bring on the cute little pubs on every corner, the Irish, and hotels with names like ‘Snoozles Nook’ and ‘Barnacles Quay’ and ‘O’Grady’s Grotto.’
It’ll be pissing with rain, I’ll be grappling with a brolly, and I’ll scuba diving to the pub for Guinness, but nothing’s gonna piss on my chips.
